We have shown in many earlier articles how today’s medical students are being inundated with equality and diversity in how sick people should be treated; more proof is in this article, which can certainly harm our children.  Pediatric group says kids should talk to their parents about tattoos — but not puberty blockers. “There was clearly no fact-checking,” one longtime AAP member said. “The AAP thought trans was the next civil-rights crusade and got boondoggled by enthusiastic young doctors (emphasis added).”

NY Gov. Kathy Hochul vetoes bill to fight deadly fentanyl scourge. Hochul, in a series of veto messages last week, said the fentanyl fighting bill was one of 39 measures that would have created task forces and commissions costing about $40 million that was not accounted for in the state budget.  This gives you an honest look at Governor Hochul’s commitment to help end the crime in New York. The Governor could have signed this bill, and vetoed the other 38, thereby keeping some of the costs down.  However, common sense was lacking, and fentanyl will still cross the border and reach New Yorkers. A commission may have helped, but we will not know, and  deaths will continue, even innocent children who never had a chance to live:  Syracuse baby who died had 23 times the amount of fentanyl that would kill an adult, report says.

New York state Sen. Tom O’Mara: One-party rule in Albany means lack of oversight

‘Last thing we need’: Pols want NYers to pay $300M so illegal migrants can stay. “We have a moral obligation to make sure that new Americans have legal representation. Otherwise, the odds are without a lawyer they’ll be sent back to their country of origin and could face dire circumstances, including death,” state Sen. Brad Hoylman (D-Manhattan) said of legislation he is sponsoring alongside Assemblywoman Catalina Cruz (D-Queens).  So, Sen. Hoylman (and Assemblymember Cruz), your statement leads us to believe that, if a thief breaks into your Manhattan (or Queens) home, you will embrace them because they may have no place to live and most likely don’t speak English because they are a “new” American, you will then pay for their lawyer, despite the fact they won’t have to pay bail and lawyers are available if you can’t afford one, and you will forgive their lack of the moral obligation not to break into your home.  Will both of you gladly do this? Yet, you expect hard working New Yorkers to foot the bill for your misguided compassion. New Yorkers are compassionate, and more than willing to help, however, compassion is a two-way street and that means coming into America legally.

Statement from New York State Conservative Party Chairman Gerard Kassar on Republican House Majority

Contact: Bill O’Reilly, 212-396-9117
November 17, 2022

Brooklyn, NY – “The New York State Conservative Party is proud to have played a pivotal role in securing a new Republican Majority in the House of Representatives. Eleven newly elected members of Congress from New York ran with Conservative Party support, and the Conservative Party line provided the direct margin of victory in four of those races.

“In all, more than 200,000 votes were cast on the Conservative Party line for the 11 victorious congressional candidates, and we look forward to building on those victories in the coming years.”

Chuck Schumer:  If Warnock loses to Herschel Walker next month, how does the status quo of the US Senate indicate a vindication of your agenda?  Even if Warnock wins, how does a one seat pickup indicate a vindication?  This US News and World Report’s (puff) piece also calls your maintaining the leadership position as vindication, but only points to three bills with Kamala Harris’s deciding vote needed to pass them, but it neglects to mention your coffers were benefited  by Sam Bankman-Fried, the disgraced former CEO of FTX whose business filed for bankruptcy days after the election, but not before pumping $40 million into the Democratic Party to spend on “get-out-the-vote” and other shadowy ballot-harvesting mechanics for the midterms. Vindication?  Not even close to vindication; sycophantic politics at its worst.  Did we happen to mention that Sam Bankman-Fried, not only spent a considerable amount of time lobbying key Washington decision makers and testifying before Congress while CEO of FTX, his fingerprints are all over key pending pieces of crypto legislation, like the still in-progress Digital Commodities Consumer Protection Act (DCCPA). There will be long term effects as the crypto industry’s plunge comes as investors continue to grapple with the stunning implosion of FTX, one of the biggest and most powerful players in the industry.
